Hobart defeats Cortland in New York State Bowl

The Hobart College football team ended the 2019 season with a 30-10 win over SUNY Cortland in the New York State Bowl this afternoon. First-year Rayshawn Boswell was named the game’s MVP after posting 231 all purpose yards, including a 95-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.


The Statesmen (9-2) never trailed in the contest, jumping out to a 10-0 lead in the first quarter and carrying a 10-7 edge into halftime. Hobart outscored their hosts 20-3 in the second half to break the game open. The Statesmen compiled 359 yards of offense while holding the Red Dragons to 284.

Senior linebacker David McCarthy ended Cortland’s first possession of the game with his first interception of the season and fourth of his career. Seven plays later, junior Kyle Hackett kicked a 29-yard field goal to give Hobart the early lead. It was his 12th field goal of the year, breaking the season record set by Shawn Fazio in 1979.
